McAfee and FireEye announced the availability of new cloud security capabilities on AWS and integration with Amazon Inspector, an automated security inspection service.

The new capabilities bring FireEye Helix behaviour analysis and machine-learning extended detection response capabilities combined with Amazon Inspector to AWS customers. The features are designed to provide AWS customers with greater visibility along with the protection of applications and data in the cloud.


FireEye Helix is a SaaS based Security Operations Platform designed on AWS to provide superior detection and response, without the overhead of full SIEM or SOAR. With integration with Amazon Inspector, data can now be coupled with threat intelligence to provide deeper vulnerability and risk context for detection and threat hunting activities. The integration also prioritizes security alerts.

The Amazon Inspector integration is in addition to existing FireEye integrations with Amazon CloudWatch, Amazon VPC Flow logs, AWS Network Firewall, AWS CloudTrail, Amazon GuardDuty, AWS Security Hub, Amazon S3 and Amazon Route 53. Data will be shared across 600 different security and business applications supported in Helix using the service.

McAfee Enterprise and FireEye are now included in the AWS ISV Workload Migration Program to help customers with funding, technology enablement and go-to-market support. The AWS IVS integration is used when AWS customers migrate independent software vendor workloads onto AWS to accelerate their digital transformation.

The AWS ISV Workload Migration Program integration supports customer migrations by providing a repeatable blueprint to migrate on-premises security solutions to AWS SaaS, PaaS and IaaS security products. McAfee Enterprise and FireEye offer cloud-native solutions for cloud migrations, cloud governance and compliance, threat protection for endpoint, networks and email, cloud access security brokers, and cloud security operations, all of which are part of the AWS migration program.


The combined technology and intelligence of McAfee Enterprise and FireEye protect AWS customers by providing that additional visibility and control, reducing overall risk while also allowing for faster migration to the cloud and easier, more streamlined interoperability.
